I followed Mary Bennetts to a new blog challenge site for me, named "Colour me scrappy".
The challenge was to use this palette
This colour scheme is right up my alley as my 3 favourite colours are blue, yellow and green.
I started with paper named "summer damask". First, I painted a wash using white acrylic paint.
Next, I used a canvas leaf as a mask and misted using turquoise over the white on top left and bottom right.
Then I matted my photo and used strips of paper under it. From these I hung my journaling tag with a brad.
In the bottom left corner I've used 2 washi tapes and a strip of paper to match my tag.
Over the top I placed a dragonfly fussy cut from another sheet of paper. I gave it eyes and a body using brads.
I placed my canvas branch(misted) across the top of the layout and added my heading.
The ponds in the photo were full of golden koi, you can't see them.
